I AM WALTER WILLIAMS

Wearefatmoose

Where are you from ?

I am from Wolcott, CT. Spent most of my adult life in North Carolina and traveling the world.

Where do you live now ?

I am currently residing in Hamden, CT.

69

What do you think are your Career Highlights ?

Tough question, I’d have to say traveling to Iceland to shoot a look book and documented the time spent there was a highlight of my livelihood as a photographer.

What is your favorite place to take picture ?

Easy, Iceland. However, as I am located in the states my favorite place would have to be anywhere in the woods. There is something special about disconnecting from everything and plunging into the wilderness.

What is your tips to take picture ? And which camera brand do you use ? 

First of all, learn your camera. Read the instruction manual and practice on multiple subjects before you try to capture the shot that truly counts. Who knows what could happen, you might get that lucky shot while practicing. I am a Canon user. I personally don’t care about falling into the Nikon and Canon debate. Every few years or so the newest models top the competitors. Buy nice glass and don’t stress about the camera body.

Who are your role models (photographer, adventurer) ? 

(I think this question is asking who my role models are.)

The adventurer/photographer named Jimmy Chin and a producer/director named Curt Morgan. These gentlemen have shaped the way I visualize my style of photography and videography.

Any favorite places to go shopping (online and real shop) ? 

I have been lacking in the shopping department because I have a brother who works with a few clothing companies. I always ask him to get me some clothes when he gets a chance. Some of these companies are as follows: Iron and Resin, Poler, REI, and Forgotten Youth Supply.

When did your passion for adventure start ?

Long story short, my childhood summers consisted of camping and spending time in the woods. Fast forward to a year out of high school and I enlisted into the U.S. Marine Corps. My time spent serving my country furthered my desire to travel and discover what this amazing world has to offer.

Do you have a motto that you apply to your life ?

Take it day by day. It is something my mother would tell me when things would get hectic. Turns out her infinite wisdom would help me get to where I am today.

What are your favorite artists (music, live performances…) ? 

You can find a wide variety of music on my iTunes. Mostly consist around as follows: rock, alternative, hardcore, metal, classical, and classic rock. Some of the go to bands and artists are the Foo Fighters, Parkway Drive, Hans Zimmer, Queen, Linkin Park, and M83M83. So many to list but on any given day you can catch me listening to bands listed above.

Where do you usually like to go on adventure ?

Since I live in Connecticut it’s easy to just go anywhere around the state. The weekends I usually take some time to venture around New England.

Any favorite places to go skiing ?

Although I don’t go as often as I would like to I still manage to spend some part of the winter up in Vermont. I usually go to Mount Snow, Okemo Mountain and Killington Mountain.

Which sport do you like ? 

I like all sports and appreciate what each offers but I mostly watch American Football and MMA. Essentially because they are the two sports I excelled in and thoroughly enjoy spectating.

What are your biggest accomplishments as an adventurer ? 

My biggest accomplishment as an adventurer would have to be narrowed down to one specific night in Iceland. After getting lost in the middle of the Highlands of Iceland my brother, along with a friend, witnessed one of the most amazing phenomenon’s of this world, aurora borealis, aka the northern lights. It was so dark that it appeared to light up the night sky like the fourth of July.

What do you feel about Fat Moose brand ? 

I have heard nothing but amazing reviews and kind words about the brand. My brother, the one who has worked with clothing lines, mentioned that Denmark knows what they are doing when it comes to clothing. He confirmed my impression of the company when he attended a trade show in NYC and visited the Fat Moose booth.

Which clothing brand do you like ? 

Brands that have clothes that fit me. I’m 6’1” 230 lbs (185 cm, 104 kg) with an active lifestyle and a lot of time spent in the gym. If the brand is consistent with sizing, then I usually stay with them. Iron and Resin has some of my favorite fitting t-shirts. ( I haven’t worn any shirts from Fat Moose yet)

Which jacket brand do you like ?

Currently I have been using a jacket from Beyond Clothing. They meet my military standard and have produced some amazing (made in the USA) clothing. I have been searching for a new jacket and have had my eye on a specific jacket on the Fat Moose site.

Where do you live now ?
ISAAC5
What is your favorite place to take picture ?

ISAAC4 2
What is your tips to take picture? And which camera brand do you use ? 
I use Nikon but I’m thinking about switching to Canon.
My number one tip is to always make sure you’ve got what you need before you venture out, there’s nothing worse than going to shoot and not having something silly like a large enough memory card.
Any favorite places to go shopping (online and real shop) ? 
Favorite to shop online is probably Amazon and in real store is probably Best Buy.
When did your passion for adventure start?
It started once I started running Cross Country for my High School. We would run to so many places around the town and I’d get to see lots of places where nobody would normally see driving or riding in a car.
Do you have a motto that you apply to your life?
“It is what it is” really what it keeps me grounded. There are some things in the universe that you can’t control. Sometimes you’ve just gotta let it go and keep pushing on

What are your favorite artists (music, live performances…) ? 
I listen to a lot of different types of music to be honest but my favorite artist out of them all is Harley Streten aka Flume. He’s a great live performer and producer musician. My second favorite artist is Ta-Ku because of how the vibe of his style of music is real nice and chilled out. When I want something to amp up to I’ll listen to someone like Drake, Childish Gambino or even Madvillain.
Where do you usually like to go on adventure?
I like to stick to areas on the more rural side of town but sometimes I’ll venture to the urban side a little.
ISAAC1
Which sport do you like ? 
I’m a huge Football fan but my favorite sport of all time is Track & Field mainly because I participate in the sport and I love to run.
What are your biggest accomplishments as an adventurer? 
My biggest accomplishment is going out in the last blizzard that we had and taking the bridge shot that you featured on your Instagram and Facebook Pages.
What do you feel about Fat Moose brand ? 
I really like your clothing. Especially your coats and jackets I’m actually dying to get my hands on one of those.

Bring It In Brooklyn by Canon

Fat Moose crossed the Brooklyn Bridge to go bowling with Canon last week:

The Japanese multinational company of cameras, Canon, organized a chill afternoon bowling session centered around five hit-Instagramers:

Amy Stone, Stefan Karlstrom, Natalie Amrossi, Rob Ceos and Scott Borrero.

So we decided to put on our bowling shoes and learn some photography tips from the pros.

Upon arrival we were given cameras and invited to talk to professional photographers and Canon assistants. We explored the local, venturing from Amy Stone’s photo booth to Stefan Karlstrom’s food photography table. First tip: eating the food DOES help you to understand how to get the right angle for your photograph’s composition.

But let’s get a bit more serious and technical: here are our top tips from Brooklyn.

NATURE SHOTS:

  • To shoot an outdoor portrait your focal length should be at 70mm or higher, never less than 50 mm, if not your subject will be distorted
  • If your photos are coming out too dark, try increasing your ISO
  • On cloudy days, it is essential to think about your wardrobe; use your white balance to control any unwanted color cast in your image
  • To add style to a good photo with bad lighting don’t hesitate to switch to black and white mode or any other filter that suites your aesthetic

CITY PICTURES:

  • Whether you are trying to take a street portrait of a stranger or friend, try making direct eye contact first, this adds a sense of human connection and it really comes through in a photo
  • The city is your playground; try to capture any contrast and truly explore even the strangest of places.
  • Try using aperture priority (Av) mode and set the F-stop to the lowest possible number for a shallow deph-of-field. This allows your subject to remain the focus of your image, especially when there is a busy background.
  • Fisheye lenses make your audience feel like they’re part of the action and creates an interesting aesthetic.
  • Try shooting in the evening and during twilight to get more dramatic pictures

Cameras Used:

Canon EOS rebel t6i: you can easily take professional level quality photographs. This camera is the best for the inner city traveller and jungle explorer as well! And a definite perk is the wifi on the camera, which makes for easy uploading.

Canon G7x: small and easy to carry around, we love this baby for its awesome creative mode that allows you to take several pictures at the same time with different settings and focus.

Thank you Canon for this amazing event and for all the tips. Best bowling game ever!
